The Middle Man
I ran across a pasuk in this week's parsha that caught my attention since Moshe Rabbeinu plays the middle man in the same manner that I do at work. When I am forced to go to someone whom I know isn't going to like the message that I have been directed to communicate, I always make sure to preface the message with a statement like this, "Listen, I am like the phone chord here. I am only relating the directives of my boss. I am just a cog in the machine ."
Now, compare that with Bamidbar 16:28:
"Moshe said, "With this you shall know that Hashem sent me to do all these deeds, for I did not devise them myself."
